Peak 10, a U.S. IT infrastructure, connectivity and cloud services provider, is expanding its operational footprint to more than 860,000 square feet with the purchase of a data center located in Louisville, Kentucky. The acquisition is part of Peak 10’s ambitious data center expansion strategy.
Already serving more than 200 enterprise customers and their end users in the Louisville market, Peak 10’s acquisition will mark its second data center facility in the area. It will also mark the seventh major expansion within Peak 10’s 10 geographic markets in the last two years alone, “with no signs of slowing down in the year ahead.”
As the largest city in Kentucky and the 30th largest Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the U.S., Louisville is home to large number of companies in the manufacturing, logistics and healthcare industries, including Fortune 500 companies Yum! Brands Inc., KFC, Kindred Healthcare and Humana, Inc.
These same industries are key verticals for Peak 10, among other enterprise segments. In fact, roughly 30% of Peak 10’s top 50 customers fall within these industries. The addition of this newest data center is a response to the demand and growing IT requirements of Peak 10’s customer base.
“This purchase furthers a critical focus on data center expansions for Peak 10,” said Chris Downie, CEO of Peak 10. “A key pillar of our strategy is continued investment in the success of our customers and we expect dynamic growth from existing and new customers in Louisville.”
The 33,000 square foot building, located 18 miles east of Peak 10’s existing Louisville location, contains sales offices, data center space, and a Technical Assistance Center that Peak 10 will integrate and invest in immediately.
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 operates 16 data centers in key U.S. markets and serves a diverse range of customers in the U.S. and abroad.
